"PAZA is a word I was taught by my Elders.  It is an old word in the Lakota language that means Tree, but not a regular tree, PAZA is the Sundance Tree--the Tree of Life.  PAZA's roots connect us to Unci Maka (Mother Earth) and all that lives above, below and within her. PAZA connects us to our Ancestors and the Creator of all things. But most important ... PAZA connects us to each other."                                                                             ~ Delwin Elk Bear Fiddler, Hehakapa Mahto ~
